The man who shot and killed a teenager in Florida after an argument over loud music told his fiancee in a telephone call a month after his arrest that he was both the victim and the victor in the deadly encounter.

“You know I was thinking about that today, I was like I’m the f*** victim here, I was the one who was victimized,” Michael Dunn said from jail in December 2012, a month after the shooting. “I mean I don’t know how else to cut it, like they attacked me, I’m the victim. I’m the victor, but I was the victim too.”

Dunn, a 47-year-old computer programmer, was convicted on Saturday of attempted murder for shooting into a car full of teenagers after the argument but the jury deadlocked on the most serious charge of first-degree murder. A mistrial was declared on the murder charge.

Dunn killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis in the parking lot of a Jacksonville gas station on the evening of Nov. 23, 2012. Dunn fired 10 shots at the red Dodge Durango that Davis and three other teens were riding in, hitting Davis three times. He died at the scene.
